Cycling is a great way to meet new people and discover new parts of the world.
That’s exactly what I did last Saturday on the BikeMinded Cake and Coffee tour.
BikeMinded is the brain child of cycling enthusiast Kathryn King (pictured on the right) as part of the Kensington and Chelsea plan to expand cycling in the area.
Along the way I got a chance to meet Jools of Velo City Girl as well as catch up with Anthony of Cyclehoop. Unfortunately, I neglected to talk to Jemma of HelpMyChainCameOff (apologies if you read this Jemma!).
The tour had a nice relaxed pace, visited some great location and managed to skilfully dodge busy roads in favour of beautiful back streets you wouldn’t normally discover. I highly recommend it for fellow London Cyclists.
There’s a couple more rides being organised. One of them will be on the 27th of October for Halloween to visit ghostly locations. There’s also a fashion competition in the works and a chef cycling challenge. The BikeMinded website has more on these. Also, if you are looking to learn the basics of bicycle maintenance then a number of courses are being organised.
